Tomar Williams was born in Las Vegas and moved with his family to
Austin, Texas in 1986. He got his start singing lead and playing various
instruments on the Chitlin Circuit with his family band as a youngster.
After years with the family band, Tomar branched out and established
himself on the Austin music scene as a keyboardist. In the 90s, Tomar
and his brother, Salih, formed the production team “Carnival Beats”.
They went on to produce iconic Hip- Hop tracks for Big Mo, Mike Jones,
and many more.
In 2015, Tomar decided to return to his roots in soul music and was
introduced to The FCs, a new instrumental band on the Austin scene.
Tomar and the FCs was born. In October of that year, the band self
recorded and released their first EP, “Day by Day”. Deborah Sengupta
Stith of the Austin American Statesman selected it as one of her top
releases of the year writing, “Williams shows his own soul chops with
searing vocals that drip with blood, sweat and tears”.
In what has become a tradition, the band opened 2016 with a NYE
show at the historic Austin Continental Club. They were selected to play
an official showcase at SXSW in March. In June, NPR Music picked
Tomar and the FCs out of hundreds of Austin entries to represent the
city for their Tiny Desk Concert series. The band became mainstays
around the Austin and built up a solid following in Texas with regular
shows in San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas.
